Gill Lice

UPDATE:  This event has been postponed. PVMA will update when new details are confirmed.

Due to some recent changes made by the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission at the end of March, there is an urgent need for USDA-accredited, Pennsylvania-licensed veterinarians who are trained and certified to inspect Pennsylvania trout for the presence of gill lice. 

Certification training will be offered on Wednesday, May 16, 2018 from 1:00 to 4:00 pm and is limited to 30 licensed and accredited veterinarians.  Three hours of approved continuing education credit will be offered through the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Veterinary Medicine.  Beginning at 1:00 pm, a one-hour lecture will be held at the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission in Bellefonte, followed by a two-hour wet lab at Benner Spring Fish Hatchery in State College.

For more details and to register, please contact Dr. Lisa Murphy at
